Dignity and Worth: Seeing the Image of God in Foster Adoption

Dignity and Worth: Seeing the Image of God in Foster Adoption

April Swiger

Does foster adoption seem complicated and confusing to you? Are you overwhelmed by birth parent visits, the revolving door of case workers, special needs, and the sensitive issue of race relations and transracial adoption? These are aspects of the foster adoption process that are often daunting and easily misunderstood. This book will change the way you look at adopting from foster care.

Let’s Tackle the Misconceptions

When we see people the way God sees them, created perfectly in his image with purpose, full of dignity and worth, it changes the way we look at foster adoption and all the broken parties involved.

It changes the way we look at race, special needs, and those with whom we seem to have nothing in common.

It changes the way we look at the tired case worker who works overtime and on weekends.

It changes the way we look at the birth parent who genuinely loves her child but doesn’t have the resources to care for him.

Adoption through foster care isn’t for everyone, but every church and every believer has an obligation to care for the fatherless (James 1:27). Of all groups in our society, Christians ought to be the most faithful to fight for these children.

Get the Right Perspective

Dignity and Worth: Seeing the Image of God in Foster Adoption breaks down common misconceptions couples face in the foster adoption process. This book will change the way you see:

– The loss and trauma your child has experienced
– A special needs placement, and why it’s sometimes ok to say “no”
– Your child’s cultural background, and how understanding it honors the image of God
– The relationship with your child’s birth parents
– The case workers who labor to keep your child safe
– Your role in caring for the fatherless when you’re not called to adopt

As we take time to consider the Imago Dei in each party of the foster adoption process our tightly held misconceptions will begin to change.

Waiting for Summer's Return (Heart of the Prairie Book #1)

Waiting for Summer’s Return (Heart of the Prairie Book #1)

Kim Vogel Sawyer

All alone on the Kansas prairie, Summer Steadman has few options. With her husband and children lost to illness, she has no desire to continue on farther west to where she and her husband planned to build their future. Instead, she seeks employment in a small Mennonite community in order to be near the graves of her family.

Widower Peter Ollenburger, the local gristmill owner, needs someone to teach his young son. When he hears of a “learned woman” in town, he believes she is the answer to his prayers. He soon discovers, however, that helping this outsider may have troublesome consequences.

There is little this father will not do for his son, but as the boy begins to look at Summer as more than a teacher, Peter must make a choice. Does he marry this woman to give his son a new mother, or does he marry only for love?

Will Summer’s broken heart ever be able to love again?

The Names of God

The Names of God

Ken Hemphill

What’s in a name? When the Bible speaks of God, the name used holds more significance than you ever knew. For example, the very first reference to God in Genesis 1:1—the name Elohim—teaches and reveals the triune nature of God. We are commanded to honor the name of God, but to do that adequately, we must understand the inherit greatness of the names which God uses to refer to himself. Ken Hemphill takes the reader through an in-depth devotional study of the names of God, teaching the significance of each name and the keys it possesses to growing us in relationship with God. God’s names are not only our protection but also reveal the very nature of God himself. This is why we are to honor his name.

Call of A Coward: The God of Moses and the Middle-Class Housewife

Call of A Coward: The God of Moses and the Middle-Class Housewife

Marcia Moston

Moses never wanted to be a leader. Jonah ran away from his missions call. And when Marcia Moston’s husband came home with a call to foreign missions, she was sure God had the wrong number. His call conflicted with her own dreams, demanded credentials she didn’t have, and required courage she couldn’t seem to find. She promised to follow where God led, but she never thought the road would lead to a Mayan village on a Guatemalan mountainside.

From the trecherous road trip to their new village home, to learning to navigate a new culture, to a stateside mission field in Vermont, Moston’s journey reveals that God leads just as clearly today as he did in biblical times. Her candid account tells a story of learning to trust and obey when faithfulness seems foolish.

Written with humor and insight, Call of a Coward is an engaging reminder that with our very real God in control, cowards become courageous and ordinary people find great purpose.

Taking readers from Michigan to Iran and from Ankara, Turkey, to Paris, France, My Name Is Mahtob depicts the profound resilience of a wounded soul healed by faith in God’s goodness and in his care and love.

Certain Jeopardy

Certain Jeopardy

Jeff Struecker

Six American men live behind a protective façade, their real work hidden from neighbors and friends. Different in countless ways, they are intimately the same in one: at any moment their lives can be altered with a phone call, and their actions may change the world.

They are Special Ops. And one team’s mission is about to hit certain jeopardy status when the discovery of an Al Qaeda base in Venezuela becomes secondary to thwarting the transport of a nuclear weapons expert from that training camp to Iran.

Informed by the true combat experience of Captain Jeff Struecker and finessed by award-winning novelist Alton Gansky, Certain Jeopardy is an immersing and pulsating fictional account of what really happens at every level of a stealth engagement: the physical enemy encounter, the spiritual war fought within a soldier, and the emotional battles in families back at home.

The Mountain Between Us

The Mountain Between Us

Charles Martin

From the author of Where the River Ends, comes this page-turning story of love and survival.

On a stormy winter night, two strangers wait for a flight at the Salt Lake City airport. Ashley Knox is an attractive, successful writer, who is flying East for her much anticipated wedding. Dr. Ben Payne has just wrapped up a medical conference and is also eager to get back East for a slate of surgeries he has scheduled for the following day. When the last outgoing flight is cancelled due to a broken de-icer and a forthcoming storm, Ben finds a charter plane that can take him around the storm and drop him in Denver to catch a connection. And when the pilot says the single engine prop plane can fit one more, if barely, Ben offers the seat to Ashley knowing that she needs to get back just as urgently. And then the unthinkable happens. The pilot has a heart attack mid-flight and the plane crashes into the High Uintas Wilderness– one of the largest stretches of harsh and remote land in the United States.

Ben, who has broken ribs and Ashley, who suffers a terrible leg fracture, along with the pilot’s dog, are faced with an incredibly harrowing battle to survive. Fortunately, Ben is a medical professional and avid climber (and in a lucky break, has his gear from a climb earlier in the week). With little hope for rescue, he must nurse Ashley back to health and figure out how they are going to get off the mountain, where the temperature hovers in the teens. Meanwhile, Ashley soon realizes that the very private Ben has some serious emotional wounds to heal as well. He explains to Ashley that he is separated from his beloved wife, but in a long standing tradition, he faithfully records messages for her on his voice recorder reflecting on their love affair. As Ashley eavesdrops on Ben’s tender words to his estranged wife she comes to fear that when it comes to her own love story, she’s just settling. And what’s more: she begins to realize that the man she is really attracted to, the man she may love, is Ben.

As the days on the mountains become weeks, their survival become increasingly perilous. How will they make it out of the wilderness and if they do, how will this experience change them forever?

Both a tender and page-turning read, The Mountain Between Us will reaffirm your belief in the power of love to sustain us.
